Armchair Airshow: can Concorde fly through Tower Bridge?


Just one of the many questions that will be explored and answered, this Saturday, 28 May, on the Armchair Airshow.

Brought to you by the disabled flying charity, Aerobility, starting at 1300, the event brings together pilots, fans, display teams and heritage aircraft, in to a three-hour, free-to-view broadcast via

Joining the show will be two world record holders, Zara Rutherford and Travis Ludlow who as teenagers, circumnavigated the world by air.

In his first year with the team, Squadron Leader, Graeme Muscat, Team Leader, the Royal Air Force, Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows aka Red 10, talks about his role and what it is like to be in charge of such an elite group of pilots.

The National Police Air Service (NPAS) will take viewers through never-before-seen footage as well as talking through other activities such as the deployment of life saving equipment from the aircraft in support of search and rescue. They will also let us know what it takes to be on the NPAS crew.

The accompanying Armchair Airshow Auction is also open offering the opportunity to bid on anything from a flight with World Air Race Champion, Nigel Lamb through to some rather nice aviation themed socks.

Mike Miller-Smith, CEO at the charity said, “The Armchair Airshow is known for delivering content you cannot see elsewhere.

“In this tradition, our very own George ‘Smokey’ Bacon jumped in the Concorde simulator at Brooklands Museum, with the Legendary Concorde pilot Stephen Bohill-Smith, to see just how agile that magnificent aircraft was. Even I don’t know if they managed to fly through Tower Bridge, but I’m looking forward to finding out!”
